Help people with muscle disease grow stronger and live longer through life-changing research and support!!
For kids and adults with muscle disease, every day is full of reminders that their muscles don’t work properly. For many, walking is impossible. Breathing can be difficult. Everyday tasks are challenging. What they need is stronger muscles, and treatments to fight against the diseases. You can give them hope with your gift today!
Your gift will fund research to further our understanding of what causes muscle diseases and how to better treat them. You'll also help provide support services such as outpatient clinics and equipment loans and referrals. And life-changing experiences like a week at camp for kids with muscle disease.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world's leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular diseases. We do so by funding worldwide research, providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide, and sponsoring nearly 80 camps across the country.
